Guru Gunasthavana (Part 10) -By Dr. B. Basker
Namaskara to all Haribhakthaas,
In this shloka the saint eulogises the greatness of tattva manjari a unique gloss by Sri Rayaru on the anubhasya of Sri Madhwacharya. It comprises of 32 verses in four chapters which encompasses the meaning of the brahma sutras and also tradition avers that acharyaru composed it to enable Achyuta preksharu to do parayana on sadana dwadashis when entire recitation of brahma sutra bhasya was difficult.
Sri Vadindraru beautifully alludes this with the incident of Lord Sri Krishna showing the entire universe to mother Yashoda in his small mouth. Sri Rayaru in tattwa manjari has clearly brought out the fact that the meaning of the entire bramha sutra is embedded in the anubhashya. Obeisaance to the great Rayaru who has composed such a wonderful work.

He is like the sun in removing the darkness of propagation of untruth; He is like the moon in causing the flowering up of the devotees of Sri Vishnu; He is merciful to the greatest extent. I bow to Sri Guru Raghavendra.
Poojyaaya raghaveandraaya satyadharmaratayacha Bhajataam kalpavrukshaaya namataam kaamadheanuvea ||
I bow to Sri Raghavendra Swamy of the following reputation:Revered; he guides us in the straight path of truth and good conduct; He fulfils the prayers of devotees completely just like the divine tree (kalpavrisksha) and the holy cow (kamadenu).
Yours in the service of Sri Harih,
Venkatesh Rajendra Rao
